What is the Brazil eVisa?

The Brazil eVisa, first launched in 2017, represents a modern approach to the visa application process. It's an electronic travel authorization allowing eligible foreign nationals to enter Brazil for various activities such as tourism, business, transit, or sports. The eVisa initiative was launched to simplify obtaining a visa for Brazil​.

This eVisa allows for multiple entries and permits several visits within its two-year validity, provided the total stay doesn't exceed the 90-day annual limit. Notably, the Brazil eVisa is solely for short-stay purposes; it doesn't permit living or working in Brazil. For visas related to work, study, or residence, you’ll need to contact the nearest Brazilian embassy or consulate.

Who can apply for a Brazil eVisa?

The Brazil eVisa was specifically designed for citizens of the United States, Canada, Australia, and Japan. This electronic visa will be a mandatory requirement for citizens of these countries planning to travel to Brazil.

Initially, Brazil had allowed visa-free entry for short stays for these nationals, aiming to facilitate easier travel for tourists and business visitors. The change to require eVisas is primarily due to the principle of reciprocity, as Brazilian citizens are required to obtain visas for these four countries. This move by the Brazilian government aims to create a more balanced travel agreement.

Brazil and Japan have now reached a reciprocal waiver agreement, allowing Japanese tourists to travel to Brazil without a visa and vice versa.

Brazil eVisa: Latest update (November 2023)

Brazil initially announced the reinstatement of the eVisa requirement for visitors from the United States, Canada, and Australia in March 2023, with a restart date set for October 1, 2023.

However, this date has been pushed back to January 10, 2024. Until this new date, citizens of these countries can still travel to Brazil for tourism and business without needing a short-stay visa for up to 90 days Per Entry.

Brazil eVisa requirements

Understanding the requirements for obtaining an eVisa is important before applying for the travel document. The Brazil eVisa process is designed to be straightforward, but it does require certain specific documents and information. The two main requirements are:

  1. Passport bio page: You must upload a high-quality color scan of the inside cover of your passport, which includes your photo, name, bio information, and signature. The passport should be valid for at least one month from the date of application and have two blank visa pages.

  2. Passport photo: The photo should have been recently taken (within the last 6 months). It should also meet the following specifications:

  • Size and composition: The photo should be a standard passport size. This typically means a size of 2 inches by 2 inches (51 mm by 51 mm).

  • Quality: The photo should be in color and of high resolution with no blurring or underexposure/overexposure.

  • Background: The background of the photo must be plain white or off-white. There should be no patterns or other objects visible.

  • Head position and facial expression: Your head should be centered in the photo, facing forward with a neutral facial expression. Both eyes should be open, and the mouth should be closed.

  • Lighting: The lighting should be even and balanced, without shadows or glare on the face or background.

  • Glasses and headwear: Glasses are usually allowed as long as they don’t cause a glare or obscure the eyes. Tinted glasses or sunglasses are not acceptable. Headwear for religious purposes is allowed but should not obscure any facial features.

Depending on the purpose of your visit and your specific circumstances, there may be additional requirements:

  • Travel itinerary: Proof of your travel plans, such as flight tickets or hotel reservations. This serves to demonstrate the purpose and duration of your visit​​.

  • Proof of sufficient funds: You may need to show that you have enough financial resources to support your stay in Brazil. This can be in the form of bank statements, credit card statements, or other financial documents​​.

  • Supporting documents: For instance, if visiting family or friends, an invitation letter from your host in Brazil may be required. In case of a name discrepancy between your birth certificate and passport, you should provide a driver's license or marriage certificate as proof of identity​.

Brazil eVisa requirements for minors

When applying for a Brazil eVisa for a minor, there are specific additional requirements that must be met, along with the general requirements applicable to all applicants. Here's what's needed for minors:

  1. Parents’ passports: Scanned copies of both parents’ or legal guardians' passport bio pages are required. These scans should be clear and contain all relevant information, such as the photo, name, bio information, and signature.

  2. Authorization letter: An authorization letter signed by both parents or legal guardians must be included. This letter should state that the parents or guardians approve of the minor's travel to Brazil.

  3. Birth certificate: A copy of the child's birth certificate must be submitted. This document confirms the relationship between the minor and the parents or legal guardians.

  4. Justification letter (if applicable): If only one parent or legal guardian is authorizing the visa request, a justification letter explaining the circumstances is required. This could be due to single parenthood, legal custody arrangements, etc.

  5. Non-Brazilian children of Brazilian citizens: For non-Brazilian children of Brazilian citizens applying for eVisas, a non-citizenship declaration form may need to be completed. This form is to declare that the child does not hold Brazilian citizenship, which affects the visa process.

  6. Document selection based on parent criteria: If the person applying on behalf of the minor selects both parents when filling out the application form, then the passport bio pages, passport photos, and a jointly signed authorization letter are needed. If the applicant selects either one of the parents or a legal guardian, then any valid document demonstrating why only one parent or one legal guardian is authorizing, along with the bio page and passport photo, is required.
